Fear and stress feed on each other. Unchecked, these can kill your creativity. Grace is the opposite of stress. What happens if we embrace grace?

I totally agree when we are able to release from stress we allow ourselves to be creative. Also the opposite certainly works. To get out of stressful situations often requires creativity. Isn't life just awesome? Here is a blog post on how to building work life harmony to keep the creative juices flowing http://bit.ly/worklifeharmony

Could Mindfulness Meditation Increase Creativity?

Could Mindfulness Meditation Increase Creativity? | creative process or what inspires creativity? | Scoop.it

One of the benefits of a meditation practice is that it allows you to access what we call "beginner's mind" -- which comes in handy when you are problem solving. Here's a study that shows how people who meditate are able to find quicker, easier solutions to logic problems than people who do not meditate. Given the complexities in the world today, having "beginner's mind" can make your life easier in many ways -- I like to think of it as X-Ray vision.

Creativity is essential as a skill for this century.

Rachelle Wooten's curator insight, March 26, 2013 11:25 AM

If there is one area where we could really use some creativity is in the area of PD! I could really appreciate this quote, "Spurts of time riddled with interruptions aren’t conducive to creativity because each time our focus is wrecked, we struggle to get back to the point we’d reached in our creative “flow”." Time is always an issue but it's so necessary to creativity.

This is a must read for everybody who needs to be creative - that is everybody. Some tips include carving out time, making this non-negotiable, and recognizing that you have to work yourself into your creative zone are only some of the things discussed. Plus you get to watch a video on the topic from John Cleese - come one, JOHN CLEESE! Great read!!
